Ozone Explore V1 Ultralight Foil Snow Kite

Built for simplicity and ease of use for all rider levels, the explore is the master of accessibility.  This single surface design opens up a world of snowkiting opportunities, allowing you to ride confidently in an instant, adventure in new terrain and discover nature's snowy wonders. 

Years of intensive research and testing the lightest materials available for kites and Paragliders has allowed us to create the Explore V1 Ultralight to increase performance without compromising durability.   We have refined every construction detail to be as weight-efficient as possible, resulting in one of the lightest de-power snow kites on the market starting at 600 grams.

The Explore V1 Ultralight is powerful for its size and delivers consistent pull throughout the wind window.  It de-powers instantly without surging across the middle fo the window and generates minimal upward lift making it very user-friendly to learn on.  it is comfortable to fly due to the relatively slow flying speed, and the single surface design means it is exceptionally resistant to crash damage.  These characteristics make the Explore an amazing kite for entry-level and intermediate riders, providing the confidence to progress and improve your Snowkiting skills.

For the advanced rider, it offers a whole new feeling, opening up new ways of riding and pushing the boundaries.  It has versatile handling depending on your ability - tight and dynamic or slow lazy loops, both essential for navigating difficult terrain,  Riding down slopes with the kite de-powered up high or the side allows more concentration on riding and less worry about the kite. 

For experts on backcountry missions or touring expeditions, the ultra-lightweight design means it can fly in very light wind, allowing you to work the low and efficiently without having to worry about keeping the kite in the sky.  The explore V1 Ultralight launched in light winds stays in the air easily in gusty conditions and is super reactive even in the lightest breeze.

The single surface design combined with lightweight materials makes it very compact and easy to pack multiple kites into one techincal backpack.  To reduce weight and packing volume even further we use unsheathed spliced and stitched bridle lines.  This line is not just light and thin, it also reduces parasitic drag resulting in fast-flying and tight turns.

When it's time to take a break or pack away you will find the Explore easy to land as it incorporates our industry-leading Internal ReRide Release System.  This effective, easy to use, self -landing system means you can land the kite quickly whenever needed and it will remain in an open position ready to be re-launched, 

We believe the opportunities are endless, what are you waiting for, go explore.

Features

Designed With OZ-CAD:  The FUTURE is now - All Ozone Kites and Wings are designed and developed using our own highly advanced custom built CAD software,  Our designers are able to work with features specifically tailored to the unique forms and structures of technical Inflatable and foil kites and wings.  Part of our design team is dedicated to the upgrade of the CAD code and addition of new modules and features to the program as the development of our product continues. 

Exceptional Ozone Factory Construction: World-class construction in our own factory, using the highest quality materials and hand checked Quality Control at every step.  The Ozone factory also manufactures our paragliding and Speed Wing range; the same Quality Control process are used across all products.

Internal Re-Ride Release System:  Our unique Internal Re-Ride Release System is the market-leading system.  It has made mountain climbing and packing so much more enjoyable, safe, easy and quick for the user.   When activated the kite de=power instantly without tangling, and will sit on the ground ready to re-launch when you're ready again. 

High-Performance Ultra Light Materials:  All new improved Ultra Light material combination: durable, airtight, lightweight double rip-stop, with a unique coating to help shed water.  Using Ultra Light materials translates to true performance increases - the kite inflates quicker, flies faster and is more reactive even in the lightest breeze. 

Lightweight Double Pulley Speed System:  Lightweight, low friction pulleys reduced wea while improving bar feel and providing smooth progressive depower. 

Single Surface Design:  The single surface concept generates ample lift with low airspeed, resulting in easy and forgiving handling, while still providing the power to climb steep slopes.  Additionally, this offers unique low end flying characteristics with instant and efficient de=power within the bar throw.  With only one skin, weight and pack volume is also reduced, ideal for backcountry exploration.  The open nature of the design means there is no air held inside the kite, which makes it extra resistant to crash damage  

L.E Profile Reinforcements:  The leading edge is reinforced with flexible lightweight plastic battens to maintain the shape of the profile during angle of attack changes and turbulent airflow.  This drastically improves overall performance as the foil remains true to the design shape. 

Spanwise Bridge Lines:  Lines running across the underside of the kite take the place of internal straps and diagonals on double surface kites, distributing load from the bridles evenly and effectively.  This avoids excessive span-wise tension being transmitted into the canopy and allows its profile and billow to be controlled more precisely. 

Low Drag Bridle Lines:  To reduce weight and packing volume even further on the Ultra-Light version kites, we use unsheathed spliced and stitched Ederide line. This line is not only lighter and thinner, but it also reduces parasitic drag resulting in faster flying and tighter turns. 

Tuned Bridle Geometry:  We work extensively during our R&D process to develop the size and range to feel in tune with each other.  Every kite has a unique bridle layout, individually tested and fine-tuned to maximize the feeling and performance. 

Fool proof line connectors:  Fool Proof numbered line connectors prevent incorrect rigging of the flying lines to the kite.
